Six years ago NASA discovered the possibility of alien life within our solar system. A probe was launched to collect samples, but crashed upon re-entry over Central America. Soon after, new life forms began to appear and grow. In an effort to stem the destruction that resulted, half of Mexico was quarantined as an infected zone.

Today, the American and Mexican military still struggle to contain the massive creatures... A jaded US journalist (McNairy) begrudgingly agrees to find his boss' daughter, a shaken American tourist (Able) and escort her through the infected zone to the safety of the US border.

 Not your average monster movie- and better for it

| | See all BennyBelmondo's reviews (3)

This film is incredible. if you're expecting Cloverfield 2 then you won't get much out of this. It needs to be watched with an open mind as a character driven road movie, that just happens to have monsters in it. The fact that it is slower than your average blockbuster is a plus- you get to take in the amazing landscapes and watch the characters develop. And not only does it deliver incredible performances, amazing locations and brilliant direction, the monsters are superb. This is the anti-blockbuster film for people who want a bit more intelligence and thought behind the camera. Gareth Edwards has managed to take a teeny budget and make this film look like a $100 million. Buy it, tell everyone about it. It's brilliant.

This is a brilliantly well crafted low cost creature feature that shoots small but thinks big!
This movie may have had a budget that would not even fill the Avatar's tea trolly, but it delivers genre jolts in a intelligent road / monster movie in a messy dead world that feels all too real.
Just because the film was shot on a shoe-string budget, the movie does not cheat on the creatures that the Director has worked miracles to bring to the screen with brilliantly renerered CGI. The alien Octopi are awesome and aweful, looming and luminous, otherwordly and fully intergrated into the films world that is an unprecedented achievement for this tiny film.
The story hosting visual scrambles the influences of the two handed rom-road-river movie that comes directly from classics such as It happend One Night and The African Queen and cheap genre-twisters like Night Of The Living Dead and classic Sci-FI such as War Of The Worlds and a million and one U.S. talky Indie flicks.
But it's the very human story that hits home in this journey through the infected zone that really effects and haunts.
We may have been here many times before, but this little film outshines the likes of SKYLINE and BATTLE L.A. for sheer vision scope, and brains.
This is the best Sci-Fi/ Invasion film in years, and don't be put off by the tiny budget or complaints of being boreing, as the overall effect will last far longer than the CGI eye-candy that most big budget cousins churn out.

One of my favourite films last year, the fact people complain at the lack of Monsters is redundant criticism. Those whom appreciate and understand this film will realise the double meaning of the films title. The effects were Spielbergian and the story, production values and score were immersive and massively impressive. Edwards directs (amongst multiple other duties) with flair which reminds me of established directors of today and the past. The acting on-screen is emotive and convictedly assured. I was blown away by the sheer emotional resonance and slickness of the storytelling and for that matter the film in general. Much reccomended.

 Great film

This film gets bad reviews because of the way it was marketed. It's sure to disappoint people who expect an out and out action film and need something to 'happen' every 3 minutes to keep their attention. It's a shame because it's actually a really good film that's more of a road movie mixed with a hint of Lost in Translation that happens to have monsters in it. Definitely worth a watch unless you have the attention span of a 4 year old.
